    Typical- 40% chevy, 30% ford, 20% street rod, 10% "other" including Mopar.

    .....but there's a LOT of it.

      vinatge Mopars only have a small amount of the total.
      But when I was there in 2019 that number of old Mopars was higher than the turnout of the two Mopar only shows (Garlits and FMA).
      Just don't expect many vintage Mopar parts in the swap meet. Swap meet is better at the Mopar only shows

          Another great trip to the Turkey Run! Here's a pic from Friday morning - 2017 Corvette GS, 2005-ish Jagaur XKR, and my Plymouth - a bit of an eclectic collection, but all car guys. Plus our Mopar friends from SC were there, but don't bring their car anymore. We parked next to a bright yellow '67 Belvedere II to boot!

          Had a great time with our friends. Weather was just about perfect. Car ran great cruising at about 80 up and back. Can't wait for next year.

          Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and safe travels!

                Great show. As Flying mentioned above, record turnout. I've been going for the past decade, this was the largest turnout ever, easily over 6,000 cars. Vendor section was completely packed. Too many cars to see, even in four days.

                For people who aren't really aware of what this show is, it's 5,000 - 6,000 cars, hot rods, and general custom cars. It's not Mopar specific, but you're going to see far more Mopars at this event than at virtually any other show in the United States.

                You have to make it a special event, if you want the full experience (to enjoy it), we can setup something for March. I'll make a new post concerning this.

                  sorry, turkey run is a nice show but I know a bunch of shows that have many more Mopars than this one
                  The best one is called "Chrysler at Carlisle":D

                  That's true, there are probably a few hundred scattered about at the Turkey run, everything from Hemi Cuda's to Richard Petty's Superbird posted above. We've went to the Don Garlit's show which is fairly large, but again, it's hit or miss every year on turnout.

                  My father's nearly 70, this is the age-group that grew up with these cars and owned them. Younger guys can't afford them, I wouldn't pay the prices many want for them. So what few we have down South, we need to at least show them to excite the next generation of car enthusiast.

                  Best deals to find at Turkey are the bottom shelf, hidden in the back box, seen out of the corner of your eye Mopar stuff in the chevy guy's spaces.
